romney's favor. in the new national poll out from the pew research center, governor romney is now tied with the president. romney trailed in this survey by 9 points before the debate. so that's a big shift toward mitt romney and away from barack obama in that poll. like wise in the new gallup poll, mr. romney polled even with the president after the debate erasing a 5-point advantage for the president. we have new polls from the swing states and near swing states. polls that include reaction to the first debate. in wisconsin today the president leads by just two points. that's according to a relatively left-leaning poll. that particular poll previously showed the president having a 7-point lead before the debate. in colorado, in one right-leaning poll romney is now up by 3 points. the same showed him losing by 5 before the debate. now he's up by 3. in virginia, the president is ahead by 3 in virginia. that same poll had the president's lead at 5 points before the debate. that shows the president's lead shrinking. in michigan, it's now barack obama by just 3 points. the president had le
, a new pew research poll shows romney leading by 4 points. this race is tightening. things are moving, gist like mitt romney. suddenly he loves covering people with pre-existing conditions and suddenly mr. romney is ignoring the fact that his tax plan is a give away to the rich. the only problem, that's not the mr. romney who's running for president and this weekend newt gingrich, one of his top surrogates let the cat out of the bag. >> standing on the stage with you in arizona, this is what mitt romney said. number one, i said today we're going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20%, including the top 1%. mr. speaker, you mentioned that your opponent, mitt romney, had a problem with being dishonest and the primary of my question is, was he dishonest when he said that? >> i think it's clear he changed. >> clearly he's changed. another romney surrogate even admitted it. >> that's all you're seeing here. it's very typical. we we strong conservatives understand that. it's campaign strategy. >> it's typical. just campaign strategy. that's all you're seeing here. very typical.
. this afternoon pew released a poll that showed a dramatic shift toward romney. this poll covers the four days since the debate, and it has romney pulling even with president obama among registered voters, 46% even. four weeks ago pew had obama up by nine among registered voters, so this has been a huge shift in the pew poll. the move in the pew poll towards romney is greater among likely voters. romney is surging ahead to 49%. four weeks ago obama led among likely voters by eight. now to the latest gallup tracking poll which covers the last seven days. gallup has president obama back in the lead at 50 to 45. what a difference from the other poll. that's exactly where the race stood before the debate. romney had surged in the tracking poll. the two candidates were actually tied in the three days immediately after the debate, but the president seems to have wiped out romney's gains in the gallup poll. joining me right now are howard fineman, editorial director of the "huffington post," and the honorable michael nutter, mayor of philadelphia and presidential surrogate in this tough campaign. gen
today points to a very tight race. according to "new york times"/cbs news poll, mitt romney leads the president by one point in colorado. tight across the country. last month the president up one point in that state n virginia, president obama's lead from last month grew slightly. in wisconsin, the candidates also within the margin of error after the president lost the point from last month and mitt romney gained two. again this is all within the margin of error. a day after mitt romney, meanwhile, told the des moines register he would not pursue any abortion related legislation as president, mr. romney looked to clarify that position while campaigning in ohio. there he told reporters he would take action from the white house to reduce the number of abortions in the country. >> i think i said time and again i'm a pro-life candidate. i'll be a pro-life president. the actions i'll take immediately are to remove funding for planned parenthood. >> remove funding for planned parenthood. he said he would ban taxpayer funding for groups that perform abortions overseas. in an interview wi
romney is leading by two points. if you look at the trend line of recent polling, you can see that obama in the blue line really picked up in september following his convention. we all saw that happen but he dropped and romney started gaining in the past several days following the debate. and as you just mentioned, bob, from ohio the president's firewall, a new cnn/opinion research poll shows obama up by four, 51%/47% among likely voters. that poll was taken after the debate -- actually after the debate. before the debate obama had a wider margin. i should point out something i learned today which i think you guys probably already know. a like lib voter as opposed to a registered voter who is a registered voter when asked from one to ten are you likely to vod, nine or ten. second question did you vote in 2010 or 2008, if you say yes to either of those three -- two out of those three, you are considered a likely voter. >> that's right. >> if you just voted in '08 and '10, that's good enough. if you voted in '08 but you say your chances are 9 to 10 -- between 1 and 10, then you're a likely
what the hell is going on? why? because they saw polls like this. now, romney with the lead, 49-47 of likely voters in a glial lineup poll. things have swung dramatically. last night i told you colorado and ohio are still comfortably in president obama's camp and if they are nothing to worry about. new poll out, american research group, colorado, romney up by four. oops! >> ohio, as how goes the country goes? oh no! 48-47 romney in the lead in ohio at least according to american research group. all right, well, now conservatives have gotten so confident and cocky they're calling the election. >> the reason i think it's over of course, i thought it was over last week and the week before. romney's going to win. part of the evidence is this was the most watched debate since 1980 when reagan ran against carter and there was only one debate that year. what happened that year? that was the first time in the last 100 years republicans took out an incumbent. >> they're calling it. let's see how it turns out. fox late in the day said you know what, we've got a new map of our projections.
families. did romney get -- what do the polls show? did he get any bounce out of the presidential debate? >> it is looking that way, sure. the first polled a little bit -- the other ones are starting to tickle out, showing a little bit of movement in his way. these are bounces, though which is why they call them bounces. it is already coming back down -- the polls were moving in romney's direction a few days before the debate kind of that natural, kind of movement of polls post convention and this certainly accelerated it. so the jobs numbers probably helped slow the obama fall but now we move into another week people will be talking about biden, and then a couple of more with romney and obama. >> bill: yeah, i was surprised and impressed, i guess that obama proved -- so he didn't have a good night, we all know that, but i thought he bounced back pretty quickly the next day. he has been having a lot of fun with the big bird line. and it showed a lot of resilience, i thought, and as you point out the job numbers came on friday which gave him another little boost, c
a big post-debate gain in the polls. romney's biggest jump in is virginia where he now leads the president by just one point. more bill coming up after the break. stay with us. >> i work with adults with developmental disabilities. growing up i had a single mother of four and people in the community were so helpful when they didn't even have much themselves. seeing people and their hardships made me want to make a difference in people's lives to give them hope. receiving a masters degree would open the doors for me to get into a management position where i would be able to do more for people. i can't stand these spots. those spots are actually leftover food and detergent residue that can redeposit on your dishware during the rinse cycle. gross. jet-dry rinse agent helps wash them away so the only thing left behind is the shine. jet-dry rinses away residues for a sparkling shine.

bird. >> big bird. >> it's me big bird. [♪ theme music ♪] >> jennifer: all right. mitt romney is still riding high off of his debate performance last week, a rash of new polls confirming that the momentum is really in his favor. seven new polls show the race has gotten extremely tight. and this coming after a pew pole yesterday which left some democrats pretty shaken up myself included. showed romney up by a full four points. the numbers both campaigns are really going to be looking at are the ones coming out of the swing states. both candidates are trail, and ohio, the picture there has changed as well. the president leads in ohio by just barely, by four points. he was up to eight points last week. et too, ohio? and they are tied in nevada at 47, in colorado romney has a four-point lead, in pennsylvania where the president had a 12 point lead three weeks ago, he now released by just three points. so how concerned should we be? well, before we all have a collective panic attack let's turn to the great nate silver. the "new york times" polling guru who last time ar
. governor romney, of course, is experiencing polling momentum, and he is trying to build upon that with a foreign policy speech that he gave at the virginia military institute just an hour ago. president obama come in the meantime is in california on a campaign tour. the last 72 hours come we have seen a growing tide of political ads and remarks from campaign officials and surrogates with one central theme. mitt romney is a liar. here is a sample. >> are you saying that governor romney lied or was dishonest? >> yes, i think he was dishonest am absolutely. >> many people are pointing out what a liar mitt romney is. if he was talking are speaking last night, he was lying. >> you know, i think that we expected an aggressive debater to show up last night. we did not expect an aggressively dishonest debater to show it. and that is what we got with mitt romney. >> many people are saying that what they saw was that governor romney that they have known all along and has been the problem in the past and they haven't seen that person. that he finally emerged during the debate. >> so you

some of those catholic numbers have tilted more towards governor romney now. >> most polls certainly have changed since that debate including the swing states back to that partisan divide, governor. this was going to be the president that brought everyone together. what happened? is he the most partisan president in recent history? >> i have never remembered one that campaigned more in a partisan fashion nor governed in one. you know, look, in an election, presidents go out every office holder goes out and takes one for the team and does the party cheer. i get that i was with president bush many times in the campaign trail both in the 2000 election and in 2004 re-election. i never heard him go out and regularly blast every democrat all the time. he spoke more about what he was gonna do not what the democrats had done wrong. when you listen to barack obama it's blame blame blame. and it's also, if you look at how he governed, didn't get a single republic vote. when the republicans put something on the table. it doesn't even get brought up to be voted on by the senate. it is a very par
in denver last week. we've seen some movement toward mitt romney in the polls. you saw that when joe biden raised the 47% video and went very hard about the values that mitt romney expressing there. but of course that provided an opening for paul ryan to come back at joe biden and his reputation for say things in the exactly the right way. >> i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> but i always say what i mean. >> now, that was a very funny line by paul ryan, but what you saw was then vice president biden picked up and continued to go aggressively as he did all night after paul ryan. and he said it was the republican ticket that was being disingenuous when paul ryan was criticizing obama's economic record, the economic stimulus and biden says, wait a minute, you asked for some of that stimulus money. >> i love my friend here. i'm not allowed to show letters, but go on our website, he sent me two letters saying by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin. we we sent mi
president obama's weak performance in denver, mitt romney, for the first time, is seeing a bump in the polls and in some states is pulling narrowly ahead. i think biden will turn that around. put paul ryan in the gop ticket back, but at the same time, the burden is on right to keep the mojo going, to keep romney's sort of balance alive for at least a few more days until the president and mitt romney face off again next week. that is the biggest reason why this thing. also, one other important point. this is one of the first, possibly the only campaign where one side is really campaigning against the policies of the other party's vice-president. as much as they are running against the other party's presidential nominee. paul ryan and his budget proposals are really a flashpoint in this campaign. i think it is unique in that sense because biden is going to be hammering paul ryan and the gop ticket on his proposal. on a long-term fiscal issue. >> you framed it this way. in 2008 gentleman show debated governors sarah palin wondering in scranton joe will show up for thursday's debate. >> the sour
tracking poll of likely voters shows the presidential race even now at 48%. and tonight nate silver's forecasted that obama will win 294 electoral college votes and mitt romney will win 245. and president obama has a 68% chance of winning the election. it seems like 24 hours ago when we first heard mitt romney say that line yesterday, there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i am familiar with that would become part of my agenda. so many questions in there. you mean you're not familiar with it? and then here's his spokesperson today saying absolutely, he will sign -- as we said last night -- he will sign any legislation that a republican congress hands him on this. >> yeah. i think we've just discovered, lawrence, how long the leash around mitt romney extends. and just where it snaps and where it -- where that is is with social conservatives. it was funny because andrea saul, his spokesperson, contradicted two things within a matter of an hour. they drag him back in and make him pay homage. >> abc interviewed talking about what mitt romney tries to hide. >> governor romn
is a poll wonk. but he is a very likable guy. and coming to us tonight with a preview of romney versus ryan is kiki mcclain. welcome back inside "the war room." >> glad to be here governor. >> jennifer: all right. i am predicting we'll see a different strategy from joe biden in this debate do you agree? >> yeah, i do, and i think it has to do with both personality and the role the vice president plays. the game is not to just beat up each other and see who coming outstanding, success will be the team that moves their candidate's message forward. and that's joe biden's job. and feel free to drive that wedge between the truth and what mr. ryan has to say. >> jennifer: i think there are a lot of wedges or air that can be exposed between, for example, paul ryan and mitt romney. paul ryan's budget, huge opportunity, and of course the lies that paul ryan himself has uttered like in his convention speech. biden is not going to sit back and take that i assume. >> no, i don't think so. and i think people will be watching for daylight between paul ryan and mitt romney. paul ryan no
